Book Review: Hackers and Painters by Paul Graham

Hackers & Painters: Big Ideas from the Computer AgeHackers & Painters: Big Ideas from the Computer Age by Paul Graham
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Enjoyed reading Paul Graham's essays. It is quite dated, for e.g, lots of reference to Web in the 1990s, 2000s time when Yahoo was a prominent .com company. Some of his opinions on wealth creation are still applicable in 2020. But we have to read his essays with plenty of skepticism. He sings praise for lisp and instills some desire in the reader to study lisp and start a startup.
